OUR TEAM

  • DAN BURMeister

    lead pastor

        

    Dan Burmeister was born in Bonn, Germany, and was raised in Sydney, Australia, and Uniontown, Ohio. He loves music and basketball. Having been defeated by the saxophone at an early age, he picked up the guitar at 15, much to the skepticism of his parents. After early gigs at nursing homes, camps, and youth groups, he decided to pursue leading worship.


    Dan holds a B.A. in Biblical Studies from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, and a Masters degree from Wheaton Graduate School. Dan served on staff at Bloomingdale Alliance Church in Bloomingdale, Illinois, from 1991-1996 where he was Pastor of Student Ministries and also Pastor of Music and Worship. In January of 1997, Dan and his wife Lara moved to Hilliard to join the staff of Life Community Church.


    Dan is married to Lara (who is responsible for anything good that comes out of Burmeister males), and the father of two sons, Kip and Kai.

  • J.R. Kennedy

    Nextgen Pastor

    J.R. Kennedy was born in, raised in, and at the rate it's going may never leave Columbus. Serving in the role of Pastor of Children's Ministries, J.R. joined the staff of LCC in July of 2005.


    He has been working with kids in one role or another since the summer of 1998 when he spent 8 weeks serving as a chaperone at a children’s camp, though he distinctly remembers signing up to serve anywhere other than with small children. That was the summer when God began to form a passion in him for a life of ministry to kids.


    J.R. attended Word of Life Bible Institute, Columbus State Community College and eventually got around to graduating from Baptist Bible College of Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Biblical Studies. He sincerely hopes that none of his choices in higher education will be held against him as he likes to think he's fairly well-rounded despite it all. Also, he wrote this bio himself, and is not entirely sure why he typed it all in third-person.


    J.R. and his wonderful wife, Rebekah, were married in 2003 and live in Plain City with their daughter Emma, son Ashton, and dog Puck.
